**UPDATE** UMPD to Participate in DEA's Drug Take Back Day on 10/22/16

College Park, MD – On October 22, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the University of Maryland Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) participated in its 12th Annual Prescription Drug Take Back, the public has embraced the opportunity these take-back events provide to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.  We collected approximately 75lbs. of unused pharmaceuticals.

Thanks again to our partners with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and everyone who assisted with the event.
